Positive tests for COVD-19 in 02908
We are very sorry to hear from our colleagues at Providence College that a number of PC commuter students who live in the 02908 neighborhood have been asked to quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19.
A small number of Bryant University commuter students live in this neighborhood as well, and we are working with the individuals directly to ensure that they have heightened testing and will quarantine off campus as appropriate.
Please be reminded that large gatherings and off-campus activities present an increased risk of exposure. We ask all Bryant commuter and residential students to refrain from being present at residences and other off-campus locations where there are gatherings. It is critical to the entire Bryant community that we remain vigilant in following the important practices for public health. Please continue to take precautions for the health and safety of our campus. We appreciate your cooperation in protecting yourself and those around you by avoiding large social gatherings, maintaining social distance, and wearing masks.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students at 232-6046.

A message from President Gittell
Dear Bryant University faculty, students, parents, and staff,
In my first weeks as Bryant’s ninth president, I’ve listened closely and learned a lot about the student-centered spirit of the Bryant University community.
Bulldogs are highly motivated and have a competitive drive to succeed. They are very loyal to each other and to our University. Small acts, like holding the door open for the next person, have a ripple effect and build a deep sense of pride, place and purpose.
As the dynamic pandemic continues, at Bryant we will draw on our strong community and be agile and persevere. We will work together towards completing a healthy and safe fall semester. As new challenges emerge we will work together and draw on science and best practice to develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of our students, faculty and staff. We will keep our community well informed and engaged.
Each and every one of us shares responsibility for our campus and community.
Go Books! Go Bulldogs! Keep Bryant strong!
Bryant University President Ross Gittell, Ph.D.
